FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -By Green Bay standards, the weather for the AFC championship game at New England will be downright balmy.
The forecast for Sunday's game between the San Diego Chargers and Patriots called for a temperature of 24 degrees, a wind chill of 13 and a slight chance of flurries. Kickoff is 3 p.m.
``I'm from Florida. I can handle the weather. They'll handle the weather,'' Patriots fullback Heath Evans said this week. ``I've said it before, sometimes we wish we could play the weather because that's pretty easy to beat - you can get warm.''
The Chargers went through a 30-minute walkthrough at Gillette Stadium on Saturday and reported no problems.
The weather in Green Bay for Sunday's NFC title game between the New York Giants and Packers was supposed to be much worse. The forecast called for a temperature around zero at kickoff at Lambeau Field.
